But I wouldn't want them back. Not with the fire in me now. No, I wouldn't want them back." A 69 year old man sits alone on his last birthday and listens to the past. KRAPPS LAST TAPE is an extraordinary study of mortality, creativity and memory. One of the major creative baton passes of the 20th century was from Samuel Beckett to Harold Pinter. These two writers, who were close friends, continue to influence generations of playwrights. The Royal Court was an artistic home for Samuel Beckett and in the year marking the centenary of his birth and the 50th anniversary of the theatre we present this special event with Harold Pinter.
